Hopefully this'll quiet some of the whining about live-action and older stuff: FUNimation has just announced that they'll be releasing the anime adaptation of Hero Tales, by Fullmetal Alchemist creator Hiromu Arakawa, as well as the series Zettai Shougeki ~Platonic Heart~, to be named Master of Martial Hearts.
 
I confess, that name is cute. Master of Martial Hearts. Teehee.
 
Anyway! Jushin Enbu is due out in fall of 2010 in two half-season sets, while Master of Martial Hearts-- a five-episode OVA --will be released in Spring 2011 on a single DVD.
 
Press releases!
 
 
UPDATE: Second press release for Master of Martial Hearts, fixing the release date (spring 2011, not winter 2010).

That Martial Hearts has pretty much every popular Japanese fetish cosplay there is with the exception of the Bunny Girl.

So that the name of this new anime "Master of Martial Hearts."  This is what I have to say about this name.

@gia: 
Not so much for me. I'm not really into the school girl, flight attendant, miko, nurse, or the maid. The cop is nice, but the girl pictured is more traffic patrol. When I think of a sexy police woman character I think of  Detective Miwako Satou, and Yui Uehara from Detective Conan.

"Hero Tales" is actually a good show. 
"Master of Martial Hearts" is not that great, it like someone made a worse version of Ikki Tousen.

@Agent_Lost: Hmm, the Hero Tales manga was pretty so-so for me, but then, expectations are pretty high for something that comes from Hiromu Arakawa @_@
